Default 5.4 3v or 5.0 ?

Im in the market for a new to me truck. Im looking at 2010-2013 F150 4x4 trucks. Looking for some input from owners of each or both on how good or bad these motors are. My old man has a 02 fx4 that I have serviced since new and the 5.4 2v in that thing has been a total POS..dropping coils,spitting plugs,lossing gears,electical issues,leaky manifolds.

Did all this bullshit carry over to the 3v 5.4 or did Ford make a better mouse trap? Or do they have all new issues? I havent heard any bad news on the 5.0 trucks so that why Im askin here.

Im gona daily this thing and use it to pull my 18' open trailer with either my 4wd Ranger truggy or my little turbo Ranger drag truck.
